What Do You Want?

What do you want in 2011?

I mean what do you really, really want. Forget what you think you should want. Forget sensible, practical, logical, all that stuff. This is about the thing that lights up your soul, that you feel passion for, the thing dreams are made of.

Just sit still for a few moments until you know what you REALLY WANT.  Now, write it down.

I can think of 3 ways this might play out:

  1. You might have a long list of things you want, pouring out faster than you can write.
  2. You have an idea or two, things that have appeared around the edges of your consciousness, but been dismissed as impractical, expensive, scary or selfish.
  3. You can’t think of anything. You are so used to sacrificing your desires that you don’t even have them any more.

For now, just write down what you want, in as little or as much detail as you can.

You need this thing in your life. It helps you live with passion, with energy, with purpose. You cannot be your true self without giving expression to the things that drive you. Of course it’s hard. If it was easy, you’d already be doing it. But if it is what you truly desire, then at least own it. That’s the first step.
